EXC: MI6 battling Donald Trump over release of classified Russia probe documents

George Papadopoulos, the former Trump campaign adviser who triggered the Russia investigation

MI6 chiefs are secretly battling Donald Trump to stop him publishing classified information linked to the Russian election meddling investigation.

The UK is warning that the US president would undermine intelligence gathering if he releases pages of an FBI application to wiretap one of his former campaign advisers.

However Trump allies are fighting back, demanding transparency and asking why Britain would oppose the move unless it had something to hide.

It forces the spotlight on whether the UK played a role in the FBI's investigation launched before the 2016 presidential election into Trump campaign ties to the Kremlin.

The Telegraph has talked to more than a dozen UK and US officials, including in American intelligence, who have revealed details about the row.

British spy chiefs have “genuine concern?about sources being exposed if classified parts of the wiretap request were made public, according to figures familiar with discussions.

“It boils down to the exposure of people? said one US intelligence official, adding: “We don’t want to reveal sources and methods.?US intelligence shares the concerns of the UK.

Another said Britain feared setting a dangerous “precedent?which could make people less likely to share information, knowing that it could one day become public.

The current row is deemed so politically sensitive that staff at the British embassy in Washington DC have been barred from discussing it with journalists.

Theresa May, who already has a testing relationship with Mr Trump, has also been kept at arms-length and is understood to have not raised the issue directly with the US president.

Trump's two-year headache

The row is about an FBI request to wiretap Carter Page, a former Trump campaign foreign policy adviser, which was made in October 2016 - the month before the US election.

The FBI said it had suspicions Mr Page was being targeted for recruitment by the Russian government and cited classified intelligence to make its case.

The agency was granted approval for 90 days of surveillance by a secret court established by the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act [Fisa]. It was renewed a number of times.

Republican allies of Mr Trump in the US Congress have pounced on the application, claiming the FBI failed to follow due process and presented information in a flawed way. A heavily redacted version of the documents has already been released.

Well, as Sammy Davis Jr once sang in the theme song to Baretta ('75-78), "Don't do the crime if you can't do the time. Don't do it."

If the Brits didn't want their "sources and methods" exposed, then they shouldn't have been up to their eyeballs in trying to affect a US election. Boo Frickin' Hoo

The Guardian (UK)(2017): British spies were first to spot Trump team's links with Russia

Which, given has since been exposed since that story first ran in April '17, should have read, "British spies were first to fabricate Trump team's links with Russia"

That might indicate why they don't want those documents to come to light.
